Stickers

Does it work to write to bike companies and ask for free stickers?

the Pinarello dealer here in Toronto will give you a pinarello sticker, but the manager, will put it personally on your Pinarello bike, so if you don't have pinarello bike, he (owner) will not give you a pinarello sticker, I think they are just safeguarding their name and brand, try writing to the manufacturer, every company may have different policy, and good luck Fubar on your quest.....

I saw on MTB Review where they had free stickers some time ago. I guess they still do. Also RockShox has stickers if you go to the "contacts" page of their site. Haven't checked any other sites but I just happened to see these. Let us know if you find any more. I have some "crash" marks to cover up!

I'll let you guys know how it goes. TITEC sent me a cool sticker. RACEFACE is supposed to send me some but its been awhile, so I probably won't get those.
Tomorrow I am going to type up several request letters and send them off to various companies, and see if any of them respond.

Ah ha!!! Great!!!! Letters go in the mail tomorrow.

I've taken years-old issues of Bicycling magazine (I used to subscribe to it) and re-read them several times.

Well, I just recieved a butt-load of brochures in the mail today. Out of all of it, I got 2 Cane creek stickers, 1 manitou sticker,and 1 answer sticker. Pretty cool stuff, I am putting the stickers on my helmet, is this uncool? I don't really care if it is, my helmet is a Bell from...Wal-Mart. When I get a new helmet I will keep it clean.

I have gotten a total of 4 stickers so far. The other day I got a slug of mail,at least 20 envelopes, and it was all bike stuff, I loved it.But only one company sent stickers, that was answer/manitou.

Gary is the bomb!!!
